'Jurassic World' just had the biggest Friday in box office history


"Jurassic World" continues to over-perform at the box office.

The film opened Thursday at 7 p.m. and broke Universal's all-time "Thursday night preview" debut record with $18.5 million. 

Friday's numbers are in and, combined with Thursday's grosses, "Jurassic World" nabbed a gargantuan $82.3 million opening day.

That number is the third-biggest debut of all time behind "Avengers: Age of Ultron" ($84 million) and "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2" ($91 million).

Forbes' Scott Mendelson reports that if you take away the late-night Thursday numbers, the film actually grossed $64.1 million on Friday alone, which is the biggest "pure" opening day of all time, surpassing the recent "Furious 7" ($52 million) and both "Avengers" films ($63 million and $57 million respectively).
